A Wedding at Lords Cricket Ground

A Wedding at Lords Cricket Ground

It was great to travel down to London again and film Clare & Steven’s beautiful Jewish wedding. Our first time at Lords Cricket ground and what a place for a wedding. Steeped in history with the origin of Lord’s being linked to one man in particular, Thomas Lord. Thomas Lord was a cricketer and businessman, born in Thirsk, Yorkshire, in 1755 who came to London in to remake the family fortune. On 31 August 1787, Lord staged his first cricket match, between Middlesex and Essex at Dorset Fields and the rest is history.

More about the Wedding

Its fair to say that Clare & Steven’s wedding was a little different than the conventional Jewish wedding and we love it when couple mix things up a bit. Clare saw Steven before the Bedekken and there was a lovely moment as they met each other outside Lords before having photographs taken. Consequently the Bedekken took place shortly after and the couple then saw each other for the second time. Things pretty much followed the usual way and they had a beautiful ceremony facing the grounds in the ‘Long Room’. One of the things I love about Jewish weddings is the Rabbi’s speak so eloquently and Clare & Steven’s wedding was no exception with both attending Rabbi’s having special stories to tell about the couple and their respective families.

On into the evening

As with many Jewish weddings Clare & Steven chose an amazing band to help them celebrate and what a party. They both entered the room to loud cheers and the band went in to full swing. We were treated to some great speeches with a brief mention of the special connection that Lords Cricket ground has to Steven and then the party started with a great choreographed first dance until all the guests poured onto the dance floor and partied hard until the end of the night.
